I ordered this to give as a gift and it far exceeded expectations, it is so cute in person! There was a shipping issue but it was fixed graciously and my shipping was returned. Thank you!

About

Everything is happening in the most peculiar way...

It all started back in 2010 when I got laid off from my receptionist job at a trade publication. It wasn't meaningful work, but it was my first job out of retail and I felt like a real, live grown-up with a steady job Monday-Friday, benefits, and free weekends! Being only 22 at the time...that was the best part! Anyway, it was a pretty big blow to lose all of that, but my husband, John, suggested I take some time off before I found another job so that it wouldn't interfere with our already planned trips to Chicago and Florida. Yay! Free time!

In August 2010, John & I were visiting my parents in Chicago and my dad suggested I try stamped metal jewelry. I had no idea what it was, but I wanted to do something to keep me busy, so I got a book on the subject that sat on my shelf for almost a year.

In June 2011, a fire lit up inside me and I felt creative for the first time in years. I started painting and drawing again, something I used to to do all the time but being an adult got in the way. I came across the stamped metal jewelry book and thought, “I can do this”. Thankfully, my husband is incredibly supportive and bought me all the supplies I needed to start out.

So there I was. Sitting at a makeshift workbench in our basement with a rusty sheet of metal, cheap metal stamps, a mallet, and metal shears. I felt like a man with all my tools, and didn’t know where to begin, so I just jumped in. I started out just practicing stamping words, and had fun with it punching out dirty words and a variety of cuss words. After I got serious and started pretending I was actually making jewelry, it came so naturally! I had no doubt in my mind that I wanted to delve deeper, create things that I would actually wear in public. So again, with the help of my husband, I bought more supplies and was just hammering away until Grey Elephant Jewelry was born.

In the beginning, GEJ was only simple aluminum pendant necklaces. I had to work with what I had which wasn’t a lot. But now, GEJ has blossomed into a wide selection of not only stamped aluminum, copper and brass, but also beaded necklaces, bracelets, rings and keychains! I do custom orders like they are going out of style, and I am always brainstorming new ideas and designs. GEJ started out as a rusty sheet of metal, and it has turned into a source of raw, unique & timeless accessories.

Every item for sale is handmade. Not every piece will look like it came off of a manufacturer's assembly line, which gives each item character and makes it absolutely one of a kind.

Items are made to order. The pieces in the pictures are not the exact ones you will receive. Once you place an order, I will then create a duplicate of that piece, so every item you receive is made especially for you!
